Inspiring kids to get creative is one of the key objectives for this site, whether it is with our learning activities, or just a spot of simple (!) colouring. So today, we are sharing some ideas for you to challenge your kids with. We have 31 days (or however many you fancy doing it over) of challenging your kids to make different things. They can make them from whatever they want, so they could colour it in, build it from lego (affiliate link), squish it with playdough, or draw it. It is entirely up to them how they manage the challenge. It can be hard to get hold of all the supplies you need, so you can keep it simple, or if you prefer something that’ll keep them entertained for longer (!) challenge them harder! The idea is that these are daily challenges for kids, but it could be faster or slower – you decide.
We have, of course, given you ideas for all the 31 activities that we have listed within our printable challenge. You could have a go at each one every day, or just tick them off as you go along. If a daily challenge, seems too much, try it weekly, or every other day instead. If your kids are a little bit older, perhaps you can challenge them to make things using slightly different ideas, from a digital drawing on the Procreate app (if you have it), to Nanoblocks; the smaller, fiddlier version of Lego!
Perhaps when the kids have completed all 31, you can give them (and maybe yourself!) a little bit of a reward for achieving them.
Did someone say ice cream? 😂 🍧 Or maybe even Mango Sorbet?!?
Whatever you decide to do, we would LOVE to see your challenges as they are completed, so why not join our fabulous Facebook group to share your makes, and colouring with us all? We have a weekly idea for you in there too, so no excuse not to keep everyone busy and entertained right?
We have got LOADS of fun and exciting ideas for you, but they aren’t so complicated that little ones won’t be able to have a go too – we want these kids challenges to be as accessible to all as they possibly can be.
So here goes – here are the 31 ideas that we have to keep you and the kids on their toes over the next few weeks.
In order to download the printable so you can tick them off as you and the kids (or just you!) go through all of them, just click on the square image below.
If you or your kids are more amazing than me, perhaps you might even be able to do this faster than in 31 days…! 😂
If there isn’t enough here for you to get stuck into, then we have loads of other amazing activities to have a go at on the site – perhaps you would rather take a look there and get yourself set for the challenges later?
Do come back to us soon – sign up to our newsletter so that you don’t miss out on all the ideas we have.
If you are hungry for more challenges, there are some excellent ones out there at the moment, not least the LEGO challenge that inspired this post…
Thanks so much for stopping by the seeing us. Really hope to see you again soon.
